15 Best Gmail Apps and Plugins for Productivity


I usually send lot of emails, especially ones that are pitch, sales, deals related etc. Also scheduling emails on Gmail will save my time. Only when I send an email at the right time across geographical locations, my email gets noticed and more chances of quick reply.

As an Internet marketer, for daily tasks I use certain third party apps which are combined with my Gmail and also built in Gmail labs feature. Certain labs feature on Gmail such as Canned Reponses, Inserting a picture in the body of email instead of attaching, smart labels, a real life saver *Undo Send* feature and more.

Apart from these lists of Gmail labs, what other applications are you using on Gmail for email management, social contacts and for productivity?
